Hi Nicolas,
You don't have to enlist. End of December is a deadline to submit your entry. Your entry figure doesn't need to be build within announcement - end of December. You may enter with figures you have finished in last 3 months.
If you have any more question do not hesitate to contact me.

OK Guys, better late than never! Just finished this one today.
Entitled "Just fire the damn thing!" (Not what it says on the baseplate, but this is a family forum! )
Figures started life as part of the DML set "Hedgerow Tank Hunters". Mixed the parts up a bit, lots of reworking, rescribing, etc. Hornet heads, wall filler groundwork and a fair bit of lead foil and here we are:







So, come on now Guys, let's see more entries!

Gary.
